Blaziken vs Emboar
Charizard was the first Fire Starter, but Blaziken is a first in and of her own right. She's the first in a string of seemingly endless Fire/Fighting Starters we've been getting since her debut in Gen III. So, it's a fight between the latest Fire/Fighter and the original Fire/Fighter.
Who's your favorite?

Ha!!! This matchup really is a joke, to me anyway. It's pretty obvious that Blaziken is going to win (at leasat in my mind). She's the original Fire/Fighter. She set the trend and the standard. She's not a "rip off". Blaziken also happens to be the only Fire Starter that I actually like. Also? She has better stats accross the board and the awesome Speed Boost ability? What does Emboar have? A funny beard? Yeah, good luck with that. This is really no contest for me.
